Today In Tribe Historty: August 18, 1975

Compiled by Jason Kaminski

Former Cleveland outfielder Earl Averill is inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on this day in 1975. That same year Averill’s number 3 was retired by the team, the third player to have such an honor from the Tribe. He spent 11 seasons with the Indians and still holds six franchise career records including extra base hits, runs batted in, triples, total bases, runs scored, and plate appearances. Averill’s best season in a Cleveland uniform happened in 1931 when he batted .333 with 32 homers and 143 RBI.
